Think Sin City is only about neon lights and blackjack? Think again. Las Vegas has become a top destination for world class spas and a paradise for even the most discerning shopping mavens.
From locally-made organic bath products to hard-to-find, internationally coveted beauty brands, Las Vegas has got it all.
Save your gambling for the craps table or the roulette wheel. When it comes to indulging your beauty addiction, we’re willing to bet that you’ll love these top beauty shopping destinations in Las Vegas:
- Miracle Mile Shops
Formerly known as the Desert Passage Shops, this collection of stores has been renamed to fit the theme of the newly branded Planet Hollywood Hotel (formerly the Aladdin). This beauty shopping destination takes the number one spot simply because of its extensive and well-rounded collection of beauty stores.
The Miracle Mile Shops house what we like to call Las Vegas’ “beauty corridor” — a veritable playground of beauty shopping that includes Sephora, Aveda, Clinique, H20, L’Occitane, Bath & Body Works, Origins, and The Body Shop.
- Wynn Esplanade at Wynn Las Vegas
Decidedly more upscale than the Miracle Mile, the beauty stores here are as luxurious and unique as the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel in which they are located. If you’re on the market for a truly top-of-the-line, personally customized, signature fragrance, then a visit to Jo Malone is an essential endeavor. With only a few stores in the U.S., this London-based perfumer has become famous for the “Art of Fragrance Combining.”
If you’re staying at the Wynn, you’ll discover the delish Desert Bambu bath and body products in your room. Since you’ll surely get addicted to the lemon-scented body wash, shampoo and lotion, you can bring home full-sized versions from The Spa Shop along with products from other brands such as Naturopathica, Anakiri and Fresh.
Be sure to stop by The Apothecary Store to stock up on hard-to-find, luxury cosmetics before rounding out your Wynn Esplanade beauty-spree with a trip to La Flirt, a boutique which sells beauty products from brands such as Bobbi Brown and Stila.
- Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian
If you’re on Wynn Las Vegas’ end of the Strip, you may also want to stop by the Grand Canal Shoppes. There, you’ll find another Sephora (a more expansive one than its sister store at the Miracle Mile Shops) as well as Acca Kappa, where you can buy the Italian brand’s luxurious, botanically formulated fragrances as well as the line’s signature bath, body, and haircare products.
- Las Vegas Premium Outlet Stores
Besides having the best fashion outlet stores in the city, Las Vegas Premium Outlet also has some good beauty shopping that includes The Cosmetics Company Store, Crabtree & Evelyn, and several discount perfume stores.
The standout beauty store in this bunch is the Cosmetics Company Store, which is a treasure trove of current, after-season, and recently discontinued items from brands such as Estee Lauder, Stila, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clinique, Prescriptives, Origins, and some fragrances such as Michael Kors. Expect to find discounts of 15-45% off retail.
- Pure Beauty located in The District at Green Valley Ranch
Staying off The Strip or trying to avoid the touristas? Try the Pure Beauty store located in The District. Pure Beauty focuses largely on hair and skin care and while it’s offerings are relatively limited, it still carries high quality brands such as Fresh, Cargo, Pout, Too Faced, Korres, Strivectin and more.
When you’re done there, make your way across the street to Whole Foods for your organic beauty fix and don’t forget to explore their selection of locally made, all-natural soaps and lotions.
Part mass-retailer, part beauty boutique, this reliable local’s favorite carries all your drugstore standards like Maybelline and Revlon, but also carries lines such as Murad, Sugar, FusionBeauty and Bare Minerals. Ulta has three locations in Las Vegas:
